Just the Facts:
  • Porsche will host the U.S. debut of the new 911 at the L.A. auto show, along with a "world premiere."
  • The new Porsche 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S go on sale in the U.S. in February.
  • The sixth-generation 991-series Porsche 911 will be sold in the U.S. as a 2012 model, replacing the current 997-series Porsche 911.

ATLANTA — Porsche will host the U.S. debut of the new sixth-generation 911 at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, along with an unspecified "world premiere."

In a telephone conversation Thursday with Edmunds.com, Porsche Cars North America spokesman Nick Twork declined to divulge any details on the "world premiere." A Porsche press release described the car as "a model boasting impressive performance and dynamic looks, exuding unadulterated driving pleasure."

Twork said the new 911 Carrera and 911 Carerra S will reach U.S. dealers in early February. The new 991-series models replace the outgoing 997-series models. Both series are being badged as 2012 models in the U.S., Twork said.

Eventually, all the various 997-series variants, including the 911 GTS, 911 Cabrio and 911 Turbo, will be replaced in the U.S. by 991-series variants, according to Twork, who declined to detail a timetable for their release.

Edmunds.com says: Don't be surprised to see Porsche follow a well-thumbed script in terms of rolling out new 911 variants over the next several years.
